I've been searching all over the net for the lyrics to Killing time In Crystal City. I think that they may have been on the album sleeve years ago. Anyway, I figured this was a good place to see if anyone knew them or where to find them online.
Thanks

"We're sorry but the artist has decided not to disclose the lyrics for this song."

interesting, it seems that he has swept the web clean...

Yea, I gave up looking after seeing that umpteen times. I'd suggest visiting his site and dropping a line requesting the same.

I'm not familiar with the song but I found the following lyrics attributed to it...



You´re so much more to me
These chords are yours to keep
Tonight i´ll guard your sleep
No matter what they see
You´re more to me
Make this last forever
Cause we amount to much
When we´re together
And i could be the crutch
To make you better
If i could rest my head
On your shoulder
Until it´s over

How come you can see me?
Everyone walks right through me
I´m just a ghost, you see
I´m so out of reach
Make this last forever
Cause we amount to much
When we´re together
And i could be the crutch
To make you better
If i could rest my head
On your shoulder
Until it´s over

We´re killing time, not doing time
We´ll be alright so close your eyes
Just take my hand and don´t let go
(Until it´s over)
We´re killing time for one more time
Just roll the titles, say good-night
This casket´s big enough for two

How come you can see me?
Everyone walks right through me
How come you can see me?
Everyone walks right through me

Make this last forever
Cause we amount to much
When we´re together
And i could be the crutch
To make you better
If i could rest my head
On your shoulder
Until it´s over

We´re killing time, not doing time
We´ll be alright so close your eyes
Just take my hand and don´t let go
(Until it´s over)
We´re killing time for one more time
Just roll the titles, say good-night
This casket´s big enough for two
(Until it´s over)
We´re killing time, not doing time
(Until it´s over)
We´re killing time for one more time
(Until it´s over)
We´re killing time, not doing time
(Until it´s over)
We´re killing time for one more time
(Until it´s over)

I guess I prefer the version from Double Dose...
